“Even on a holiday?”
“Of course I love playing this game.”
It had really become a thing of their to play chess together. It was just that it let them talk, as well as of course they both enjoying the little competition they had with who had won the most games.
“It has always been chess with us.. haven’t it?”
“Since they game was invented, yes.”
“What did we do before that?”
“Eh… I honestly don’t remember.”
They decided to go swimming when the sun was slowly going down, they had gotten a tip that there might be dolphins out there, and they were not let down by the tip.
“You know.. I think this has been the best vacation ever!”
“Have you actually had any more than this one?”
“Would it matter.. it would still be the best one ever”
“I have one more place I would like to show you really..”
“Wait.. have you been there before?”
“Well.. I have asked Hayle and Chris for places..”
“Ah, coming prepared too.. I’m impressed.”
“Good, then so far I am doing good.”
They swam together to the beach, getting changed, before he took her hand and started walking together towards for her at least, somewhere unknown.
“Okay.. what is up?”
“You are acting nervous.. I know you too well to ignore it.”
“I guess I am a little nervous.”
He turned around and pulled her a bit closer.
“Yes.. because I have decided that I am not going to wait.”
“I know you worry, I know your scared it might be something wrong with this dance. But I know the only thing that isn’t wrong right now.. is us.”
“So little lady death.. will you marry this old soul?”
“…. Yes.. dumbass, but yes!”
She had been really surprised by this action, but she had to admit, she was also really happy that it had been his choice and not something she had to push for.
“Do I need to ask your dad for your hand.. or something like it?”
“No.. I don’t think you do, you done it so many times.. I mean, unless you want to?”
“Well.. I know Chris is home… I think he would apriciate the company, and the news.”
“Lets go visit then.”
